Why a third blog?

For quite some time now I have wanted to paint. But somehow I end up drawing with pen, pencil or charcoal most of the time since I am more comfortable drawing rather than painting. But having retired recently I have more time on my hands for my hobbies. I have therefore finally decided to take the plunge and commit myself to doing at least a few watercolour sketches every week in addition to my dry media sketches. I intend using this blog to maintain a record of my progress. Hopefully I will see improvement and that will motivate me to paint on a regular basis.

I am now posting some of the colour work, in watercolour, watercolour pencils, colourpencils, and ink & colour,that I have done over the last few years, to show where I am at right now. In my next couple of posts I shall share what I have done recently and after that hopefully it will be a few new paintings or colour sketches every week. 


  1. Such wonderful works Balaji !! They all are very very nice. There is always a crispness and a neat finish in all your works. I love the ship ,and the building next to jug sketch. Looking forward to more colourful treats.
